Hey from the Uk here
This site is doing the rounds on many Ford Focus enthusiast pages… but several questions that I cannot find answers from officially.
I am just using Syn3 Updater to produce the USB stick, have selected EU config etc. I already have Maps V9 but from the looks of it if I don’t select maps it wipes everything off and there will be none so I am selecting the latest maps within Syn3, firstly is that correct?
Is it recommended to update the APIM, other than the radio icons and calm screen does it add anything else?
Climate, other people in the UK that have performed the update have ended up with climate control that controls the wrong side, e.g drivers side will control passenger side etc. Some have said it is because this is setup for LHS cars and will not work on RHS drive? Can anyone verify if the updates will fix this? By standard normal sync 3 below 3.4 does not have climate enabled on the sync screen.
Finally, does the update fix the horrible auto-dimming of the sync screen to lighting conditions, the screen at 3.0 and below has an awful flicker almost strobe-like effect when it is adjusting to different lighting conditions. Is this something that the APIM update fixes?
Thank you for any help.
